I don't care how money-loaded they are, but God, this horrid blindening blue logo has to go. Plus it doesn't fit the grass at all.

I kind of prefer it over Stella. The red just didn't look good against the grass.

Really ? I thought that red and the grass was a good combination at Queen's. Anyway, grass courts need darker coulours outside.

I like it. Contrasts with the grass nicely.

I'm sure you are reach enough (why else would you be spending your time on this board?) to take over and sponsor these events. :wavey:

Always remember when it was Direct Line at Eastbourne and they used to have that giant red telephone - which they'd have to cover with tarpaulin whenever it was too sunny and bright as it reflected.

I much preferred Stella Artois red at Queens, I thought it looked lovely.

IIRC, Roger Draper did an interview at Queens in 2008 where he said that the LTA had deliberately ended their deal with Stella Artois early, and were pursuing a four year, £30 million sponsorship deal which would encompass all the British Grass tournaments prior to Wimbledon. It looks like thanks to Andy Murray and Laura Robson, they succeeded.

I remember last year when I first saw the new blue of Aegon, my eyes hurt. I still don't like it, but my eyes have adjusted.
